I still carry a Civilian, deeply concealed, on a regular basis. Even though my (rather limited) blade training, since acquiring my pair of Civilians, has been more point-driven, the slim compactness of a Civi makes it effortless to carry, and its methodology is quite intuitive, so it still has a place in my life.
Yes, I did, indeed, say "slim compactness" in reference to the Spyderco Civilian. A Spyderco Temperance fixed-blade, or a Strider AR folder, is starting to get just a bit chunky.
Civilians, Dodo, Guntings, Mili, P'kal, Rescues, Ronins, Temperance, others...
Have Colt, will travel.
